As Rosstandart clarifies, we are talking about a frontal passenger airbag. Due to a defect in the gas generator, it can explode and metal parts will fly around the cabin, which can injure others. On revoked vehicles, the defective gas generator will be replaced with a new one. Repair will be free for owners.
Takata pillows until 2015 were installed on cars of many brands, including Nissan, Toyota, Ford, Mitsubishi, BMW, Mazda and Ford. The recall campaigns related to defective pillows have been held for the past six years and cover more than 12 brands and 40-53 million cars.
Abroad, at least 16 people became victims of dangerous pillows and dozens of victims.
